Thomas Tuchel, Chelsea head coach has encapsulated the results of the 0-0 EPL game against Manchester United.
On the game
It was a quality game between two very strong teams. In the first half, we had a difficult time, but in general, the game was equal. In the second half, I thought Chelsea was really strong.
I thought we were closer to winning, but the level of play was high. In terms of the game, I am satisfied. In the first half, we were not good enough in terms of attack and space. At half-time, we told [the players] not to worry. We were very close to winning.
We accept the result. I am completely satisfied. Against a team like MJ, you can’t get many chances.”
On the Hudson-Odoi and Greenwood episode, viewed through VAR
Why the intervention of the VAR here? The player in red played his hand and we’re checking the moment for a penalty? Why would the referee be looking at that?
I saw the moment on my Ipad, I’m glad it wasn’t a penalty. It would have been worse.
